That’s what leadership is all about.” Kevin C. Washington Education & Civic Leader, West Seattle

Another Teacher for Steve... “The School Board isn’t a job for Steve – it’s a passion. His devotion to all our kids is real. Steve’s priority is to get resources to the classroom. He is committed to supporting teachers and lower class sizes, so all students get the kind of individual attention they deserve.”
